  • "We had a lovely stay at the “At the Bay Apartment” for an entire week in August."

    The 3-bed apartment was spacious enough to easily accommodate the five of us. The property is literally looking over the beach and the ocean view through the windows is stunning—one bedroom and the lounge room are facing the beach. There is also a coastal trail near the beach which leads to a viewpoint where you can enjoy watching the sunset. We did off street parking for free. There is also a car park in 2 min walk which costs £2.70 per day. The property had recently been renovated and the owner was very detail oriented. We had all we needed even including board games and books for entertainment. The owner Jamie was very kind and approachable. She also owns the café downstairs where you enjoy 10% discount as the apartment guests. There is no issue with noise at all as the café opens late and closes early. Overall, the apartment is impeccable.

    Thank you for the wonderful feedback, we are delighted to hear that you had a lovely stay. The breathtaking views of the beach and sea from the apartment's windows are indeed one of the property's highlights, and we're thrilled that you found them as stunning as we do. Your description of the apartment as "impeccable" is music to our ears and we would be very happy to welcome you back whenever your travels bring you to the area again. * Dear Grace, thank you so much for the wonderful message you left in our visitor book- I also have many happy memories with my Nan at this beach. I hope you will treasure yours as I do mine :) Property Owner
